"The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice."
(Martin Luther King Jr.)
Our new recording is The Long Road and our present political situation makes the title particularly relevant. Now in our 40th year, BassDrumBone has always had a concern for social justice, our previous recording was called The Other Parade. Our music, and all the music at the Vision Festival, represents the true democracy that is jazz: individual freedom coupled with group responsibility. We’re delighted and honored to be here with you. - Ray Anderson
